Tailor Made Beef

We strive to make the healthiest, nutrient-dense beef possible.

Mother Earth News and Grass-Fed Beef

A friend sent me the link to a Mother Earth News article centered around getting livestock back on the land instead of buildings and feedlots. Pretty well done in my estimation (if I were a writer I would have said a thing or three differently). Cattle on mineral rich grasses produce less greenhouse gas (and […]

Sleeping Kitchen and the Seven Super Foods

Most of us are trying to stay, or get, healthy on a budget. This morning Dr. Mercola came up with a list of seven Super Foods we can all afford. Before, I write the list, I want to plug “Local” “Regenerative” “Nutrient-rich” Farmers. The Boise Farmers Market, located at 10th and Grove-just off the connector, […]

“The mineral that causes more cancer than any other mineral.”

Dr. Richard Olree, from Hillman Michigan, co-authored a book entitled “Minerals for The Genetic Code” The first half of the book is a fascinating read. The second half gets very detailed. Dr. Olree says that Fluorine causes more cancer than any other mineral. Iodine prevents more cancer than any other mineral. Now we are finding that fluoridation […]

What is in our food, that shouldn’t be?

I have read quite a few books and articles and heard a number of speakers talk about the various kinds of bad things we should avoid in our food. Alas, we live in a pop culture and if some of us can’t get it on “I-tunes” well, it just doesn’t seem to matter in our […]

What is your favorite flavor of Pi(e)

Happy Pi Day! If you like numbers, Yesterday, March 14, 2015, should have been a good day for you. When written as a numerical date, it’s 3/14/15, corresponding to the first five digits of pi (3.1415) — a once-in-a-century coincidence! Pi Day, which would have been the 136th birthday of Albert Einstein, is a great excuse […]

Thursday Morning Ah-Ha

Some years ago, there was a Mensa Convention in San Francisco .. Mensa, as you know, is a national organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher. Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local cafe. When they sat down, one of them discovered that their salt shaker […]


I am thankful for all of my happy customers

I have received a few comments from customers about their experiences with the beef… Just in on Feb 25… We had purchased ½ beef from you in December 2014, and wanted to say that we were very pleased with the processing and packaging from Greenleaf Meats.  We found the butchers had trimmed and packaged everything […]

Calving 101 presented by #505

This video kind of kits close to home for some ranchers I had originally put this up on Tailor Made Cattle so my consulting clients could see it. It is just cute enough that I thought everyone I know might like it. “…until then, leave me alone and let me do my thing“

The “Fibberatti”

I just viewed this video and found it to be right on…! And then Dean Carlson put some “Wall Street” numbers to it.

Why are we breeding the nutrition out of our food?

Plants and animals need vitamins and minerals to survive. As our soils get more and more depleted, the ability to grow a nutrient-rich, heritage “breed” of just about anything is curtailed. Ah. science to the rescue. We have figured out how to cross-breed plants and animals (and now GMO’s are the illogical next step) that […]
